Well, ncurses has taken the big step to Unicode. That's about as far
as curses takes you. The applications that use curses know how to
handle characters. All are the same height and either half-width or
full-width (or 'normal' and double).  How do you propose to extend the
curses interface to display arbitrary ojects of arbitrary size? Not to
mention that the applications need to know about the non-text objects,
